Hey, look! It's Marvelous Monday!

Hello, all - and welcome to another Monday. I hope the new week is treating you well so far. I am stepping in for Haldoor today, hoping to inspire some words, art, or general creativity in your week!

I had a lot to try to accomplish this weekend, and for once I pushed past my 'end of the work week' lethargy and got to it! Organizing and cleaning, packing for a trip, and getting two runs in since I've been slack lately. Also, finishing up a long running knitting project I hope to get in the mail to the recipient tomorrow, and getting ready for a hellacious couple of days pre-vacation days at work, 'cause we all know how those go. I'm glad to say 85% of it got done. The only things I left aside were the work projects, but hey - it was blessedly sunny and mild out so I make no apologies.

There were also some words! Well....

...maybe not as many as I might have written a while back, but 695 more words than existed on Friday. It feels like they are likely to lead to a published fic this week, so that's definite progress.

How about you? How did the weekend treat you, and do you have some space in the week ahead for some words or some art?

I got my bingos done. Just have to post them. I also worked on a few other stories, so it was a good weekend.

Now please save me from Christmas.

Sweet! I'm so glad to see the bingo entries rolling in. I will be reading them later this week- on a plane and/or on vaca, gah, I can't wait...

I wish you the very best for the rush ahead. ;\ May January arrive in a flash. :}

Thank you for stepping in! My Monday was fairly uneventful, but busy enough! I had every intention of making words for Bingo, but unfortunately they didn't happen and I'm not sure I'll have time for them this week, because in 6 days, I'm off to meet K in Vegas! I can't believe it's so close now! I have packing to do and things to sort for my almost-grown kids who will be looking after the house and such while Hubby and I are gone, so I can't see much creating going on, though I do intend to get the last three rows of my knitted blanket crocheted together before I leave. I'll leave the crocheting around the outside part till I'm home again though.

You are most welcome - and I so know what you mean. Prepping for getting out of town is never easy for me. I feel like I'm a little ahead of it this time, but I know I'll be pressed at the last minute as usual. It just seems to be the way it goes.

I might be bringing my niece's dog blanket on vaca with me. I did squares, too - but they're extra bulky yarn and it doesn't look nice enough. Needs a border and maybe some ribbon, so...yeah. It might get to go to Hawaii with me, lol. ;)

I had a fairly productive weekend. I finally, FINALLY, finished with all of the debris from my closet cleaning debacle. And I cleaned, AND too, I finished a knitting project. I'm calling that all win. There were no words, but my desk is now clear so I'm more likely to word with that.

This week is mostly dealing with getting ready for the trip (we're in the air a week from right now), some family do's, Dog grooming, me grooming... But sadly no words.

Soon though. There will be concentrated wording when we get back.

ENJOY YOUR TRIP!!!

That's awesome! Good for us, getting ahead of the curve on the travel plans. :) I hope to see some Vegas pics and will raise a glass to say a very happy b'day to you. :)

Sounds like you've been productive, which is always a great feeling. Hope you have a blast on your trip.

It's a sad day in these parts, but we've come a long way in a year.

My bingo is done even if the fic isn't. Oops. Hope to finish that last chapter in the next couple days. But for the most part, I'm hanging out and waiting to infringe on K and H's vacation. Hahaha.

It's so strange - this year seems to have lasted two years somehow. I don't know if that makes sense, but I couldn't quite believe it'd only been a year since that awful day. :\ Still hard to believe it happened.

Enjoy the visit, and I'm really bummed I won't be there, except...Hawaii. (I'm addicted).

I can totally relate - so much has happened in my life since 10/1/17. Yeah, and despite what happened here and several other places across the country since then, we're no closer to making it stop.

ANYWAY. Off the sadness soapbox. Hahaha.

K told me and I cannot blame you! I'd rather visit Hawaii, too! I hope you have a wonderful time! Next plan is to get me out of this darn state! At least I don't live in Las Vegas proper so I can say I get out of town every night. :D
